Grace is a divorced woman, with two children, one of whom is in school. They live in a rental house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food for the children.
Grace has operated a clothes-selling business in which she sells at the market to her town-dwellers and her neighbors. She cites her major challenge to be the rate of stock turnover, which is affected by the seasons.
With the loan she is requesting, Grace wants to purchase two bales of clothes for resale. She decided to join Yehu Microfinance Trust to access loans to boost her business.
